Complete and unedited

In an email from the distributor for this title, 2Entertain, I was assured that this box set of Bergerac is complete in two ways: it contains all the episodes, and every episode has been restored to its full running length. The unfortunate errors committed for the seasons 1 and 6 releases have been rectified for this box set and future distributions of those individual seasons also will have the full length episodes, not the shortened versions.
This series was a constant companion through the 1980s and was consistently enjoyable. It is one of the half a dozen crime related TV series from Britain which set a standard to match. It has stood the test of time and will entertain and audience today. Newcomers to Bergerac may find though that the concept for the series gets diluted towards the end, especially as some of the favourite regular characters appear less often (Sean Arnold's character Barney Crozier is particularly missed) but it's worth seeing the series through to the end with the 1991 Christmas special which which brings the series to a satisfying conclusion.
